ASUS Radeon HD 5870 TOP and HD 5850 DirectCu Pictured

ASUS is readying a new factory-overclocked, custom-design graphics card based on the ATI Radeon HD 5870 GPU, likely named the EAH5870-TOP. The company is also readying the Radeon HD 5850 based EAH5850 DirectCu. While the EAH5870-TOP is expected to have high out of the box clock speeds, a higher performance sporty-looking cooler, the EAH5850 DirectCu relies on a more function-centric cooler design that boasts of being 35% quieter and 20% cooler [than reference AMD cooler]. Further details, such as clock speeds are not known, but it is expected that ASUS will release these during CeBIT 2010, later this quarter.

That 5870 looks NOICE. The 5850 also looks good but I thought most of the other ones came with 2 DVI ports, that card only has one.

Wow, that's awesome dedication right there. I definitely appreciate the work you do though. The relative performance summary charts by resolution are my personal favorite. Keep up the great work man! :toast:

the 5850 looks good, i always did like coolers smaller than the card (as opposed to hanging over the end and making more clearance issues)
